know, when did he know it, and did he go to bed while leon panetta was up all night? that just seems so extraneous. it's just using chuck hagel as hostage for the lerchlg because wasn't even around during benghazi. >> it certainly seems -- andrea, i guess i'm skeptical of the idea that in the week's time they really need time to review what chuck hagel has said in the past, his speeches. he know chuck hagel has said controversial things about iran and we know he has said controversial things about homo sexuality that he has since apologized for. this delay seems to me maybe i'm being too cynical and political that that's kind of my thing, but this delay seems to be about the opponents of chuck hagel who do not think he is suited to be secretary of defense want one more week to see if there is anything that comes out that can be disqualifying for him. if there isn't -- if you are hagel, you never want to be twisting in the wind for another week while you kind of sit silently and europe independents do everything they can to kind of find something disqualifying? >> susan rice, the nominee
. cornyn: mr. president, to my knowledge, we do have a secretary of defense and his name is leon panetta. and it's my understanding that mr. panetta's going to stay on the job, a job that he's done very well as secretary of defense and as c.i.a. director for the last several years. the majority leader knows full well that the reason why cloture was denied or the debate -- closing off debate was denied is because there are reasonable requests being made on this side for additional information, and i hope and trust that that information will be provided here in the next few days and when we come back from the recess, we'll have another vote and another opportunity for senators to express themselves. but this is not any attempt to kill this nomination. this is not a filibuster. i realize that's the headline that the majority leader would like the newspapers to write. we actually had some very reasonable discussions going on earlier today among senators on the democratic side and republican side to try to work this out. given the fact that this nomination has just so recently been reported f

would it mean if leon panetta had to go to that meeting instead of chuck hagel? >> well, you know, i think the big issues here have to do not so much with the nato meeting because with all due respect to n.a.t.o. it's a great organization, i don't know of any huge n.a.t.o. decisions that are up coming in the next few weeks. but the sequestration looms and you well know, and the iran management looms. we have to make decisions on afghanistan. but the president just made most of those for the time being. again, i think it's sequestration and iran probably that demands hagel get up to speed quickly. that's where i would want him confirmed to engage on those debates as soon as possible. >> michael: i would suspect there would be republican glee in embarrassing the president having to send in sitting but lame duck secretary to nato. so i feel like that's part of what they want tad. to do. >> very quickly. you're right. any particular incident like that may factor in at a detailed level. but the fundamental question here the fundamental issue is that republicans don't really like chuck hag

the testimony last week by secretary of defense panetta and chairman dempsey revealed a vacuum of leadership at the top of the obama administration that i found not only unprecedented but shocking and very, very disturbing, that the president wasn't intimately involved in worrying about these americans under attack, worried about other americans elsewhere in the middle east, in north africa, possibly being under attack, the lack of contact between the secretary of defense and the secretary of state. i mean this is a -- we face a threat in that region, the president is nowhere close to adequately dealing witness. i hope he talks about it tonight. he certainly didn't in his inaugural address. bill: would you expect that? i'm not counting on it. i don't think the president pays adequate attention to international affairs. i suppose he'll say something about north korea because he doesn't have any choice. bill: john bolton thank you. hemmer@fox news.com. bya, because you asked, just one line is all we need. martha: this story and this man who is a doctor are getting a ton of attention after he m
lasted a lot a year but leon panetta and i know he's one of your neighbors in california she was captured by the operation mentality of the cia before he'd been in the building more than a month this was a national security team obama also was by the military that's how you got the surge of the forces i think he realizes he had by the military and that is important and one of the reasons why i'm a little more optimistic about a second term he's a wise man and foreign policy and if the end of the war and iraq keas meander into words and the the war afghanistan and he's allowing the pentagon and you have to remember when you're looking at the pentagon you are looking at an institution that has defined motor skills and a dinosaur. if you take the pentagon a long time to put something together all but obama has to do and i know it isn't this simple but i would look at the gorbachev experience. he came out of 1985 he gave the secret speech in 1986 denouncing afghanistan to his fellow bureau colleagues as a bleeding wound he had the moxie secretly tell shultz we were getting out that the milita

, secretary panetta, who is going to be leaving his job in less than two hours, chairman of the joint chiefs martin dempsey, and others have already testified regarding the athat can claimed four -- the attack that claimed four american lives. chuck hagel had nothing to do with the attack in benghazi. the administration hasn't been forthcoming is outlandish. there are serious consequences to this delay. consequences that are occurring right now. the president is making some important decisions about afghanistan. he announced to the world just a day or two ago that 34,000 troops will be coming home during the next year from afghanistan. we're negotiating with the afghan government regarding how we'll support them beyond 2014. negotiations are going on right now. i heard today from former senator john kerry that he's headed for the middle east. why? syria. that's something else that the secretary of defense has to be concerned about. next week while we're on recess, while we're on recess, they're having a nato defense ministers meeting. they'll be in brussels? what to do? to coordinate ou our
cuts and now they are saying it would be so awful. leon panetta, the defense secretary, saying it would hollow out the military and have grave reactions. this is not how washington is supposed to operate, is it? >> no, it's not. and let me explain. when the president proposed the sequester, it was as an incentive to those of us in congress to work together in a bipartisan way to solve these problems. it was supposed to be so awful that the supercommittee would finally reach a bipartisan agreement. but because they completely reject the revenue, it never happened. now that we have gone over fiscal cliff. we have proposed about roughly $700 billion in new taxes on the wealthiest americans over the next 10 years. the president believes, and i agree, within tax reform we can find additional savings over the next 10 years. use that to move toward deficit reduction and still keep this economy moving forward. >> how do you gain this -- again, i go back to what the president said a year ago, that he would fight obstruction with action. what is it that he has to show for that? the one piece of a
defense secretary leon panetta warned that those countries and the uses will have to contend with, quote, rogue states for some time. >> you just saw what north korea has done in these last few weeks. the missile test and now a nuclear test. they represent a serious threat to the united states of america. we've got to be prepared to deal with that. >> steven: north korea's own public statement insisted today's test was only a first response. it said it will be additional actions to come but gave no specifics. >> brown: and i'm joined by ambassador charles "jack" pritchard, former u.s. special envoy for north korea negotiatons under president george w. bush. and james acton, a senior associate in the nuclear policy program at the carnegie endowment for international peace. ambassador pritchard, i guess one obvious question is why now? >> it's a great question. and i usually start by saying why not now? let me explain that. north koreans have a very mature and serious nuclear weapon and a missile technology program. they're going to continue to do the research and development. when the tim
panetta said it would be irresponsible for the congress to allow it to happen. many of us agree, it must be avoided. but apart from that challenge in the next month, or series of months, the long-term outlook for the department of defense is that it must do more with less, and secretary hagel, if he is confirmed, will have that management task, and he is one of the people in this country who is almost uniquely qualified to carry it out. and i believe that he will with great distinction. he will take care of our men and women in uniform and strengthen our national defense, he will do what he thinks is right even if it's not popular, and he is, finally, as everyone has said, a good and decent man. i thank in particular senator mccain for his very compelling and telling comment during our consideration before the vote in the armed services committee. he said -- and i agree -- no one should impugn chuck hagel's character. he's a person of integrity and character. and i believe that he will have the respect at all levels of our defense, men and women who serve and sacrifice every day, men and
briefing tuesday. >>> and leon panetta testified thursday saying the pentagon did not have any forces close to libya when the u.s. consulate was attacked last september. he also said for the first time, or he said for the first time that the defense department supported arming rebels in syria. that's a direct contrast to the official position of the obama administration. >>> funeral services will be held at arlington cemetery today for a virginia soldier. 28-year-old sergeant aaron whitman was a graduate of the citadel. he was on his second deployment to afghanistan when he was killed last month. he was the first u.s. combat casualty of the year. he was based out of fort stewart, georgia. >>> the first lady will attend the funeral of the murdered chicago teenager who performed at the president's inauguration. funeral services for hadiya pendleton will be held tomorrow. police say the drum majorette was talking with a group of friends last week when she was shot in the back by a stray bullet. so far, no arrests in this case. but it has brought renewed attention to chicago's high moderated an
about it during the retirement ceremony for defense secretary leon panetta. panetta talked about it wednesday at georgetown university and warned about the damage sequestration would do to the nation's economy. this is a little of what he had to say. we will continue our conversation with ray locker of "usa today." [video clip]>> if this happens, we will fire as many as 8000 dod employees throughout the country. they could face a 20% cut in their salary. you do not think that will impact our economy or jobs? you do not think that will impact our ability to recover from the recession? we will cut back on army training and maintenance. putting about 2/3 of our active for great -- active regain combat at a reduced level. we have to cut their training. we will have to cut back on the ability to support the troops who are not in the war zone. we put more stress on those who are in the war zone. we are going to have to shrink our global naval operations. with a reduction of our western pacific naval operation. this idea about having to rebalance will be impacted. we will cut the air fo
secretary of defense. and i have to say, sitting there this week with secretary panetta, a man who i served with come in and i am proud to have voted for, i was proud to vote for him at the beginning of his term as secretary of defense come in here at the end of the term, i'm just as proud. mr. chairman, i would be delighted and eager to vote for you for confirmation for secretary of defense. i would do that without hesitation. i would've voted for senator warner, senator nunn. clearly senator hagel brought the right people with him, but we need the right secretary of defense, and chuck hagel is not the right secretary of defense for this time. we need a secretary of defense who can stand before the world and articulate that we reject a policy of containment of a nuclear iran. we need a secretary of defense that can stand before the world and be clear in making the point that the iranian government is not a legitimately constituted government. when senator hagel made the misstatement about the legitimacy of the iranian government, senator gillibrand had to come back later, explained to him,
security. it's important to note that secretary panetta has made clear that allowing these sweeping cuts to go into effect would be -- quote -- "devastateing -- devastating in his words and would badly damage the readiness of the united states military. the fact is defense has already taken a huge reduction in future spending. the defense budget has been cut and is slated to be cut by $460 billion over ten years, and that is before sequestration. when this number is added to the defense cuts scheduled to begin on march 1, we are looking at an enormous impact on the -- our national security. now, it's important to recognize that we're not saying that the national debt is not a problem. certainly, when you have a $16.4 trillion debt, that is not sustainable, and the national debt is a security concern in its own right. just last year, in 2012, the federal government spent $223 billion in interest payments alone. that means we're spending more on interest on the national debt each month than we spend in an entire year on naval shipbuilding and the coast guard budget. just think about that.
the problem. >> jack, in the armed services hearing last week secretary panetta testified that following his and general dempsey's 5:00 meeting after the benghazi attack, they had no further contact with the white house and it was their understanding that you, as chief of staff, the individual briefing the president. is that accurate? >> i did speak with the president that evening. the national security staff was working on the issue on a nonstop basis. >> who was briefing the president? were you? >> i was in the room when the president was briefed but i was not briefing the president. >> brennan said it wasn't him, secretary panetta said it wasn't him, ambassador kennedy said it wasn't him and the f.b.i. said it wasn't them. we have eliminated a lot of people who had contact with any intelligence community that knew first half hand about what was going on in benghazi. let me ask you again, who briefed the president on what was happening throughout the seven-hour period? >> in the conversations i was in the national security staff was present. >> was john brennan included in that? >> you're
in the hearings. the administration has been very clear. leon panetta when he was head of the cia was clear that it is torture and the u.s. does not engage in torture. while there is a continuation of policies related to drones and targeted assassinations, i don't think that there is necessarily a continuation of or ttorture. >> well, the debate we are not having is what are the contours of this, and if we want to win hearts and minds to go back to a vietnam plauz, what are thrase, the contours of this? will it expand and come back to hit us in a strong way? >> as someone who knows the pro and con intell and we send people into the area to make people suspicious of each other, and killed people in a domestic sphere, aed on the know the ugliness and the nastiness of that and the ways in which have sat over and against any american notice that we are not the kind of country that does that, but to get on the other side of co-intel to say i need that to be reflected in the 21st history. >> and to that, brennan was the architect of the waterboarding program or in the testimony he said he was awa
